The life of a book
Updated: Dec 28, 2020
A book is an amazing thing. It can live many years, sometimes decades or centuries beyond the life of the author. If written for The Lord, it becomes a vehicle for change in those we never meet. It may travel next door or around the world. Folks may argue and debate the qualities of becoming a Christian with another human. They can dispute its contents, however, they can try to rewrite it the printed word remains. It can become an ambassador passed from hand to hand.
At times it lies on a shelve untouched for years the message remains the same. A tract or pamphlet may be tossed away seldom is a book thrown out unless it’s beyond repair. A well-written book can be a missionary for generations to come. A companion in time of loneliness or a help in need. A book can bring you closer to God. Fiction or nonfiction: the Christian writer is a missionary, a purveyor all that is good. An extension of themselves extolling the name of Christ. Toiling not for wealth or fame but furtherance the kingdom of God. And someday many years after the author is gone, the book that he writes will still speak for The Lord.
